Disregarding safety procedures can injure others

Construction workers know that the safety standards they learned during their training are vital in keeping them and their associates safe. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in Minnesota, as well as the rest of the country. If a safety procedure is ignored or done improperly, it is not only construction workers who can be endangered. Innocent bystanders can be hurt or killed as well.

Understanding National Work Zone Awareness Week

Spring is here and along with the daffodils and budding trees, Minnesota residents can look forward to road construction. While drivers may consider road construction a pain, residents may also understand that it is necessary to keep the roads and communities safe and in good repair. At Lindberg Law, P.C., we are certain you have a deeper appreciation for work zone safety if construction is your job.

Staying warm at work this winter

Sauk Rapids residents do not need to be told that Minnesota's winters can become extremely cold. You feel this every day during the winter season, especially if you labor in a profession that involves a lot of work outdoors (such as the construction industry). With the winter fast approaching, it is important to know not only how to protect yourself from the cold, but also what obligations your employer has to do so, as well. Many come to us here at Lindberg Law, P.C. after having suffered an injury from exposure while at work thinking that they have no legal recourse. That may not be case. 

How can employers protect workers from loud noise?

When it comes to protecting workers, Minnesota employers should not neglect the issue of workplace noise. While some jobs do not feature loud work environments, industries like construction, manufacturing and maintenance do produce a lot of noise that can damage the hearing of workers. While workplace noise can be reduced by administrative or mechanical means, it is not always possible, so employers should take steps to protect their workers.

OSHA's prioritized approach to inspections

If you have ever been concerned about safety at your place of work in Minnesota, you might have wondered how safety hazards are monitored and how you can be protected. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration does actually conduct inspections of job locations but due to the sheet volume of businesses it could theoretically inspect. These inspections are carried out by compliance safety and health officers who are trained to identify hazards.

Most common workplace safety standard violations

In Minnesota and across the nation, there are many safety standards in place. These exist in order to keep workers from being harmed while on the job. However, there are many safety violations that occur at jobs all across the board, potentially putting the lives and well-being of workers at risk.

Should you prepare for construction dangers this spring?

Spring is just around the corner, even if the recent weather makes it hard to believe. As you know, it will be more common to see construction in Minnesota once the weather warms up. Spring and summer means construction season for most states across the country, and this might also mean an increase in accidents, whether you work in the construction industry or are a pedestrian near worksites.
